Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also earned an A+ inspection grade. This is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. Our nursing score is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a dominant short-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be this facility's third most impressive category score. In that area, we gave this facility a score of A-. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded an A-. This topped off a very favorable report card. Few nursing homes earned an A- or higher in all four categories. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 88.43931 percent of its patients. This is slightly less than we expected. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
